This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Kate Evans is an adventurous and independent young woman with a pioneering spirit. She pilots a mail-delivery plane in the forbidding Alaskan wilderness, the lone woman in a male profession. But even that seems easy compared to finding true love. She likes a fellow pilot and would even consider marrying him--if it weren't for Paul, a mysterious man on her mail route with a gentle spirit and a past to hide. Can Kate break through the walls Paul has put up around his heart? And will her quest for adventure be her demise?

Book 1 in the Alaskan Skies series, Touching the Clouds will draw readers in with raw emotion and suspense, all against the stunning backdrop of the Alaskan wilds.

From Publishers Weekly

May 03, 2010 – Inspirational fiction writer Leon (Sydney Cove series) begins a new series set in Alaska during the 1930s. Kate Evans is a pilot who wants nothing more than to fly the Alaskan skies. Kate is so determined that she breaks her engagement to a childhood sweetheart and flies alone to Alaska looking for work. She discovers that the men who hire pilots don t want to risk hiring a woman pilot, so she settles for working in a local store until she can prove herself capable and tough enough to handle the Alaskan bush. She finally succeeds in landing a mail-delivery job, where she meets the mysterious Paul Anderson, who does his level best not to be attracted to her. Circumstances throw the two together, and they discover that they each have a similar significant secret they re hiding from each other and the world. Slowly, Kate and Paul tease what is hidden out of each other through trust and over time. Leon s work is neatly written, yet there are plot settings readers will see from a mile away coming in for a landing.

Customer Reviews

Touching the clouds

Enjoyable and clean love story with beautiful vistas to imagine.

Whisked Away...

Loved the story and was invested immediately in the characters. It was very sweet and not cheesy as other authors could have gone.

Touching the Clouds

In the beginning, before women pilots were well thought of. In the beginning, before Alaska was a state. In the beginning, when women were suppose to get married and raise a family. Then along came Kate Evans and the rest is HISTORY! Read "Touching the Cloud" I guarantee you will be inspired.
